Lamborghini Aventador J

You've got to feel sorry for every other car manufacturer at Geneva 2012. The show hasn't even officially started yet and already everyone's falling over themselves with excitement about the Lamborghini Aventador J.
They're right to do so, too. I mean, look at it, it's astonishing. Named for the FIA's Appendix J race car regulations, the standard Aventador - a formidable machine in itself - loses its roof and windscreen to create a kind of KTM X-Box XXL. It's strengthened with a weird material made of epoxy resin-soaked carbon-fibre strands, which apparently is simultaneously stiff and pliable (an idea which makes my brain fizz, frankly), and is rather lighter than the coupe thanks to its lack of things like air-con, sat-nav and, er, glass. So it'll be even quicker. And it's street legal, for goodness' sake!
Before you rush out and buy EuroMillions tickets, this Aventador J is the only one they're making - so if you have a few million quid lying about already, you'd best get over to Geneva sharpish and put your biggest smile on...
